Rock Veteran Ted Nugent recently posted a short clip from one of his interviews on Facebook. Nugent stated that actually, he doesn’t hunt animals, but Jesus does it for him using Nugent’s arrow.
As you may know, apart from his being a professional and successful rock musician with many best-selling albums, Ted Nugent defines himself as a passionate and dedicated hunter. He also recently became spokesperson of Hunter Nation, which is an organization aiming to protect hunters’ rights.
Moreover, Nugent has claimed that animals can’t have rights, and hunting has great benefits to nature. This statement was heavily criticized by various organizations such as People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals, which was formed to protect animal rights. However, this doesn’t seem to have affected the musician.
In the recently shared video, Ted Nugent revealed that Jesus comes and takes his arrow to stab the animals perfectly while he is hunting. Therefore according to him, he can’t take responsibility for his successful hunts because they have happened thanks to Jesus.
In Nugent’s words, he said:
“I didn’t shoot. For many of the arrows that I shoot, I know I had the bow on my head and I drew back the full draw. However, I take no responsibility for all disconnected pump stations that I have achieved this year. When I come to full draw, Jesus comes down, takes my arrow off the bow, and stabs every animal anatomically perfect.
You can be the lamb of God, but just like I said before, I reside in the cleavage of God. So it’s a little more comfortable than the lamb. I’m having the time of my life that I can’t wait to hear the spirit and to witness not just the wildlife’s beauty and intensity but the damn people are are the best in the world.”
He went on to say:
“Rather than being loud and outrageous ‘Pray Jesus’ and I go ‘Thank you, Jesus, that was a good stab, you stabbed that big butt perfectly Jesus.”
Consequently, it seems like Ted Nugent will continue to share his controversial statements about hunting animals without considering what animal rights activists think about it.
